Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard Volume 1


In 2010, I had the opportunity to work alongside my good friend Sean Rubin to create an original story in David Petersen's award-winning Mouse Guard universe, which I had been a fan of since discovering his Fall 1152 collection in college.

The story, focusing on the efforts of a single member of the titular Mouse Guard to defeat a crazed bear, was meant to capture the essence of the Guard's struggle -- protecting even the most vulnerable mouse civilizations so that they may grow.

Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard Volume 1 went on to win an Eisner award for Best Anthology, and it also stuck around the New York Times Bestseller List in the Graphic Novels category for several weeks.
